"they're going to put more in r&d and robotic." wages in china are rising so quickly that the boston consulting group estimates labor costs for manufacturing in china and the u.s. could converge as early as 2015. think of it - a billion consumers with more money to spend. "you want people to have money to buy your product." but there's a catch - china wants to promote chinese-made goods. "chinese always try to encourage buying goods made in china. it helps unemployment and is a source of national pride." for products aimed at american consumers, the real winner in china's rising wages may be mexico - a lot closer to the u.s., which means faster and cheaper. another benefit to the u.s. if mexico's export economy is stronger - american companies earn 37 cents of every dollar exported from mexico. why? mexican companies rely that much on american-made pa

to attack federal fourses in new mexico. journalist predicted that blood would soon be spilled in the halls of congress, and guns were drawn. in fact. and yet in the end, a solution, a compromise was found. the questions i began with were, how? how did congress make a paralyzed system actually work? and what would a close examination of the debates reveal about the costs of unyielding partisanship, and about the nature of compromise, and about the human qualities that it took to bridge a divide that many americans feared could never be crossed. and i should say, i also fell in love with the orator of the 1850s. the politicians of the time spoke per swayssively and provocatively and passionately in language that was so splendid it reached the level of literature. incidentally, all the speeches were available, down loadable for free, the library of congress. they make great reading, most of them. and thanks to the library of congress, they're making them available. the spin doctors argued and grammatically challenged messages that that today passes for political communication truly is patheti
